Orosins, Paulus, a native of Tarragona, Spain, wrote, in the fifth century, a compilation which he called Historiarum adversus Paganos Libri VII. It is of little value, but was a popular text-book in the Middle Ages, and was translated by King Alfred. There are two modern English versions, one by H. Sweet. Orosius was acquainted with St. Augustine, and wrote against Origen.
